Holiday Home Work Part 1

Ten days of holiday and I'm only going
a) to sleep
b) online
c) to camwhore

Meh. So, I figured I would lug up the 7 litres of pink paint that's been sitting in the trunk of my car since last year - and paint my room PINK and WHITE! Not supercute stripes macam Xiaxue's Princess room lah, a blue and purple striped living room is more than enough stripes for me.
But first, decluttering! I have a crazy number of handbags, clothes, accessories, etc. And in Brunei, it's not easy (but not impossible) to find "poor" people, let alone any who'd want another pink handbag :P So I turned to google and searched for "Brunei donate clothes to" and BINGO! Brunei's No. 1 Social News had blogged about the SMARTER Shop in Bandar, behind HSBC in the Wisma building, where they accept 2nd hand stuff and sell it at superlow prices and all proceeds go to SMARTER!

So I dug through my closet and unearthed a few tops.

I still have these?

And found my brown cowgirl top....and a fur trimmed one *sigh*

Ten kg ago...

Two relatively new blue tank tops I never really liked.

One shoulder top I rarely wore and the cute top from Miri *sniff*

My fave turtleneck (10kg ago) and a tank with a dragon guarding the wearer

One of those badminton shirts from memory lane

My first top from Stones..used to be above Supa Save

A black tee, a white tee and a black & white tank :D

Swimsuit I didnt wear much cos of the ruffles

Handmade for me by Wook Jung's mom...awww *sob*

Aiii...the clutterbusters did warn that it wouldnt be easy, but it's done with 30 tops, a swim suit and 2 pairs of shorts. *YAY* And then the bags. At first, superdifficult. Like this:

Buhbye to pink bag, Hello to pink bag with Hello Kitty :P

Then even worse:

Buhbye to furry bag...Hello to THREE furry bags.

Like this cannot leh. So 4 of them went in one shot. Too kanak2 to use anymore.

And with 3 more made a decent pile.

So I could finally start painting :D space for the :P

Didnt take pics of the finished door, but here's a pic of Basit. Wide-eyed Basit

Which reminds me very very much of a picture of my little cousin Shifa:

Wide eyed Shifa

Same or not?

Random. Blah.

Very random bunch of pictures in very un-chronological order. While I still have access to a PC :P The first one is from the assessment test week. The poor kids can't leave their place from anything between 30 mins to an hour. No storybooks allowed, no drawing, no talking, no fidgeting, no anything even remotely entertaining. And most of them finish their tests in 10 mins. And get creative!

Very Bored.
Next is seashells from a trip to Muara beach with Basit. The beach was full of driftwood and not very lawa. Didn't take any pictures since I'd stupidly left my phone in the car. So sayang cos while walking along the shore, we came across a shell with the inhabitant intact and crawling around on long, creepy-looking legs!
And we found what Basit insists is a human bone (the thicker bit between wrist and elbow..radius kah?) which he flung back to sea. Eee. It wasn't a totally creepy trip though, as we were leaving, we saw fireworks..from a cruise ship which had just left the port! Macam movie!

Huge seashell the size of my hand!
And huge seashell decorated with smaller seashells, blur stars and nail polish! It currently hangs from my front door from a pretty, silvery iPod earphone wire :P
Another superlong seashell...can even lawan my superlong finger!
Makes mine look quite stubby!
And here are the not-so-stubby fingers redeeming themselves below. With pretty nail extensions!
The thumb looks like a Thai dancer's finger :P
Next is from when I went to Big Papa's to finish marking my piles of Assessment papers. And ordered a Milo Panas and some new dessert thingie from Japan called a 'crepe'. So I ordered a Chocolate Crepe.
Which turned out to be Dosai.

With Chocolate sauce. Aiyoooo!
Mary's shoes make a comeback!
Black velvet with a gorgeous heel!

So cheery!

And from Chinese New Year, here's a picture from Mark's house.
A Framed Dog.
What's so special about it?
It's made from....

Real hair!!!
Also two turtles under Mark's coffee table...

And their respective turtle bums.
From January, near St. George's School...
A Christmas tree (it lights up)

Made from empty bottles. Wah!
Back to CNY...a pair of baby oranges, which I placed side by side. It looked like one orange was holding their other because of the curvy leaf. So romantic!

Second last is a random picture of Basit. Which turned out looking a bit like one of those shots of nocturnal creatures in National Geographic hehe :)
And lastly to conclude a superlong blog post,
A homesick lungi.
